Injured on holiday in Argentina?

Argentina is home to one of the world’s hippest cities, Buenos Aires. It’s a wonderful city to explore on foot – old fashioned, characterful buildings sit alongside modern glass fronted offices. The city centre and Calle Florida are the busiest parts, but the café culture of Avenida Corrientes offers a more relaxed pace. The Cementerio de la Recoleta is a labyrinth of mausoleums just waiting to be explored; it’s here you will find Evita’s grave. Hike The Andes, take a trip to Iguazu Falls, visit Peninsula Valdes, one of the finest nature reserves in South America, or explore Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, where you can see a 30km long, 5km wide, 60m high iceberg!

Accidents on holiday in Argentina

The beauty of nature is everywhere in Argentina and many people on holiday here choose to take part in outdoor activities such as hiking, trekking or rock climbing. There are various different types of accidents which you could be involved in during your holiday in Argentina, but here are a few of the most common:

If you’ve been injured on holiday, it’s a good idea to consider making a claim for compensation if somebody else was to blame for your accident.

Who is to blame?

Under the 1992 Package Travel Regulations, hotel staff and tour operators have a duty of care to look after visitors during their holiday – this means ensuring that excursions have been properly risk assessed, making sure the hotel is clean and that the environment is safe for visitors. If you feel that staff or your tour operator have been negligent, you could make a claim for compensation. Even if you’re unsure, contacting a personal injury lawyer will allow you to get an objective view on the situation. Remember, personal injury lawyers have dealt with hundreds of similar claims for accidents on holiday, so you’re not alone.
